ELYRIA — Dan Graves, the chairman of the Elyria Republican Party, resigned his post Thursday, effective immediately.Graves, who has said he would leave because his job was too demanding, will be replaced in the interim by Ray Noble, the vice chairman. Graves will remain as a precinct committeeman.

Noble said there’ll be a Sept. 15 meeting of the city’s Republicans to choose Graves’ replacement. He said he plans to appoint a three-person committee to determine likely successors.
